…in his first in-depth interview since the FBI raided his office and homes in April, Cohen strongly signaled his willingness to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York — even if that puts President Trump in jeopardy.

“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” Cohen told me. “I put family and country first.”

We spoke for 45 minutes Saturday evening at a Manhattan hotel, where Cohen has been staying for the past several months. And during that time, the question of whether Cohen might flip on the president has been the subject of intense speculation.

When I asked Cohen directly what he would do if prosecutors forced him to choose between protecting the president and protecting his family, he said his family is “my first priority.”

Cohen added: “Once I understand what charges might be filed against me, if any at all, I will defer to my new counsel, Guy Petrillo, for guidance.”

But when I pointed out to Cohen that he wasn’t repeating past vows to “take a bullet” and “do anything” to protect the president, the longtime Trump loyalist left little doubt about where he stands now, saying simply: “To be crystal clear, my wife, my daughter and my son, and this country have my first loyalty.”

We have been saying for a long time that Cohen was likely ready to flip. 

I think that this interview is essentially his message to Trump that the flipping is either already happening, or imminent.

    ” In fact he said that he strongly disagreed with Trump’s strong criticisms of the Mueller and FBI investigations, and said they were not a “hoax” or a “witch hunt.”’

    Amazing what happens when you’re facing prison, isn’t it.
    Along the same lines of why Queen Heifer quit and knows she can’t run for anything again.

    I will send money to pay for Cohen’s legal team if he comes out and says he paid Sarah to abort Donny’s baby.

    Boy, my told you sos are really starting to add up. Did anyone not see this coming? Really? After Trump has thrown every loyal minion under the bus after they’ve been indicted by Mueller his lackeys would be stupid not to cut a deal.

    The noose is getting tighter and soon Mueller will be looking at collusion and possibly worse.
